Re: Another Henson Aluminum tipped Bullet Test
The accuracy key is in the twist rate but if you look at a Speer Gold Dot pistol bullet or the functional equivalent, ( expands well at low velocities <750 fps) the expansion key with the AL great tip is to have slits in the meplat behind the tip so the tip will drive rearward thereby forcing the banana peel effect we are looking for. A high BC bthp can be a good game bullet with the caveat of a uniform tip to start the expansion and to give a uniform length which, in turn, gives uniform vertical dispersions necessary for high accuracy.
In the aviation world, the disastrous Scy of Defense, under LBJ, was R. Macnamara ( from Ford [ hint hint}) who thought one aircraft could be a fighter, bomber, carrier plane, and even a chopper- the result was the obsolete F-111; a total compromise that was a billion dollar joke. My 'point' is that it requires a number of compromises to get:
B. high BC
C. market acceptable costs
D. expansion at low velocities
E. magazine acceptable lengths
Berger has one bullet that may be used for hunting at long ranges bu they have been at it for how many years? Give this maker the inputs from our expertise not the flames for failures-.
Let us lighten up on our attacks on each other and attack instead the technical problems for the good of us all. Overbore
